Drawing from the experience and insights of the author, this book guides the reader and provides advice about how best to arrange the human resources available to optimise the effectiveness and efficiency of the organisation. It then looks at which tasks are best conducted internally as opposed to outsourcing and what sort of organisation structures and formats work best. Decisions then need to be made on the key processes and the tools that are needed to be put in place. It highlights the key issues for consideration, the options available and the decision making process as well as the opportunities and challenges that exist at each stage of this journey towards setting up a successful patent factory.
"Donal O'Connell makes a dramatic contribution to the literature through the ideas and constructs detailed in Inside the Patent Factory. His writing lilt and clarity transform an idiosyncratic legal art into an explicit process that can be proactively managed to realize the competitive advantages of patents. Any innovation professional can use this guide to logically organize, operate and measure the intellectual property related activities at their firm. Kudos to Donal and his publisher for bringing this important information resource to market." - James G. Conley
